Helping people has been an important part of my life for many years. I love how counselling can help people to become more comfortable with who they are, and all the great things that can come from this whether it be more fulfilling relationships, or making changes at home or work, or, perhaps most importantly, feeling more peaceful and content about their life.
Over the course of my training and career, I have developed a counselling approach which is gentle, accepting, exploratory and engaging. I have been described by many people as a calming person to be around, and feedback from my clients has shown that this comes across in our work too.
As well as running my private practice, Ember Counselling, I work with employee assistance programmes to provide counselling support to local people and organisations. I have previously worked as a counsellor with a a London-based online counselling helpline, Droitwich Foodbank, HOW College, a local wellbeing centre, the Stroke Association and Cruse Bereavement Care. I have been a volunteer with Worcester Samaritans for several years, and also have the position of a Deputy Director at the branch. Over the years, I have gained valuable experience at organisations such as the Primrose Hospice and the community mental health team.
